A newly appointed parish priest for Gozitan community in Malta,Fr John Sultana, has come under fire for allowing 50 young children to pull him through the streets in an expensive sportscar .
A spokesman for the Gozo Curia Catholic Church said
“It was a tradition in certain Gozitan villages for the new parish priest to be paraded through the streets of the parish in a vehicle that was often pulled by the locality’s children”
The new Priest added:
“I’m sorry, but to me this simply isn’t an issue and certain comments being made are just not right”
Many people believe it’s wrong for the man of God to use the flashy and luxurious Porsche Boxster that has a starting price of $71,400 (Approx. ₦21.5m) and can exceed $82,000(Approx. ₦30m) in top trim levels.
The 300-hp fantastic luxury sports car has a top speed of 275 km/hr and will move from zero to 62mph in 4.9secs

“This is disturbing! Why on earth is this joker in a Porsche instead of humbly devoting himself to the community?”
